Executive summary: Candy

Mandy Moore grew up around Orlando, and after much pleading her parents sent her to a summer musical theater camp when she was nine years old. Over the next few years, she nudged local sports teams to let her sing the national anthem. As a teen, Moore did voiceovers and commercials, and performed in Florida theater productions of South Pacific, Bye Bye Birdie, and Guys & Dolls. Sony signed her to a recording contract in 1999, when she was 15. Moore's Britney Spears-alike debut album, So Real, spawned the song "Candy". Her second album, I Wanna Be With You, was basically a re-release of the first album, with several tracks replaced and "Candy" remixed. Both So Real and I Wanna Be With You went platinum.

Inevitably Moore moved toward movies, first doing a voice for Dr. Dolittle 2. Her first leading role was in A Walk to Remember, a teen tearjerker, and has since appeared in How to Deal, Chasing Liberty, and Saved!. She recorded the voice of "Ducky" for Universal Studios California's "Land Before Time" attraction.

Her third album, Mandy Moore, featured the singles "In My Pocket", "Crush", and "Cry". Her fourth album, Coverage, consisted entirely of Moore's covers of her favorite songs you've heard elsewhere. Coverage didn't approach platinum sales levels, though, and Sony dropped her. Moore has since been picked up by Warner Brothers.
